Dear Parents,

On behalf of the Juliette Low PTO, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning families. The Juliette Low Community is made up of three important components: the staff, the children and the parents. We have a fantastic staff here at Juliette Low. Our teachers work tirelessly to provide the best education possible for our children. The children, in turn, put forth their best effort to be our shining stars everyday. It is up to us, the parents, to do our part to support them both.


All parents are encouraged to join the PTO and to attend the monthly meetings. This is another way to meet staff and get to know the parents. It is also a forum for your suggestions, questions and ideas. Suggestions are always welcome! Please come and share your ideas with us!


Our Mission as a PTO is as follows:

  • To enrich the student experience through fun and educational activities and events that are not otherwise available through the daily curriculum and the district budget. Examples:  Book Fair, Cultural Arts, Explore More Day, Challenger Cup Soccer Tournament, Track & Field Day & Bowling Field Trip
  • To build community among children, parents, teachers, staff, and the neighborhood.  Examples:  Halloween & Holiday parties, District Outerwear Drive, Teacher Appreciation Week, Buzz Book, Back-to-School & End of Year Parties for special groups, Ice Cream Social, Holiday Shoppe, 5th Grade t-shirts & field trip, Orbit Skate Night, KOP (Kindergarten Orientation Program), Yearbook & Picture Day, Blizzard Nights and Spirit Wear
  • To improve the physical environment of the school and its surroundings, or within the classroom.  Examples:  Rotating Teacher Wish List, Workroom Support, and more.

We all want the same thing for our children: that they receive the best education possible in a warm, nurturing environment. By sharing our talents we will continue to make Juliette Low a place where we “Make Learning Happen Together.”
